Pacing refers to a technique of Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP). It describes a pacing with the other person. Often, we are not even aware of it, but we are constantly adapting and moving to a behavioral level with other people. If someone laughs, we automatically laugh with them, even if the reason may not be obvious to us. Besides this simple example, there are countless others; it is always a matter of adapting to others in one's visual and auditory expressive behavior. The behavior of the counterpart is practically mirrored. In the therapeutic context and in hypnosis, this is a common method to first pick up the client where he or she is at the moment. People feel more comfortable in mirrored behavior and can feel more understood. An example of this is breath pacing, in which breathing is adjusted. Another example may be sitting posture.
